New Pictures

I’ve been having a blast taking pictures of Carly without Deeder man here to try to sit on her whenever she’s out of her room! Unfortunately it’s still not as easy as I thought that it might be. I figured that babies just don’t move around as much as todders do so taking snaps of little ones would be a breeze. Not so! I have major blur issues!
Any suggestions on what settings might be good? I have a Canon PowerShot. Perhaps it’s time to get out the old manual and maybe get some tips.

Here are some that I took this morning about 8:30-ish.The ones above were taken about 10AM which seems to be an hour with good lighting which has been my main help in taking Deeder pictures.

Here’s the blur I’m talking about:

Interested in seeing some new Deeder pictures? Click here to visit my sister Kayla’s blog. I love seeing Deeder’s smile again! And of course the familiar faces of my family and friend Miss Morris. :)
I also really like the picture of Deeder with Lass and that other dog who’s name I can never remember posted on my mom’s blog, click here for that. At home Deeder doesn’t get many opportunities to be so close to dogs.

Glad that you guys are having a fun time.

    I know I’ve said it about sixty times already, but she’s adorable!

    As for the blur… in the first instance, you have a selective focus thing going on. See how her hand is in focus and her face isn’t? If you moved the camera just a bit to the right, her face may have been in focus. Does the camera focus when you push the shutter button down halfway? If so, this will tell you — more or less — what will be in focus.

    (I know you’re dealing with a moving creature, so you don’t have the benefit of waiting long.)

    I think in the second instance you’re running into the same “problem,” but what’s in focus isn’t in front of Carly (like her hand was) but behind her. As my husband says, with autofocus, something HAS to be in focus. Heck if I can figure out what it is sometimes, though. :)

    Personally, I LOVE the first “blurry” photo. The shot of her little hand with her face a little out of focus is just lovely!

    Was that more of an answer than you wanted? :)

    The pictures of Carly all snuggly on the bed, with her bright little face, are so nice!

    I’m glad you’re doing better about missing your little guy. Wish you were here, but hopefully we’ll get to see you and Carly pretty soon. :)

    I’ll try once again to upload a video of Deeder man. :)

    Aww so sweet :) She’s changing so much already, soon the newborn-esque look will be gone from her and she’ll be all baby!
